Join World Maths Day!

March 1, 2011 is World Maths Day!

It is a fantastic Internet project for students.
Mrs. Ranney's class participated last year and really enjoyed the experience!

All students were given a Username and Password today, so they can start preparing for March 1.

Good luck! 
Let us know which countries you have played against!


  1. Dear Mrs. Ranney,
    I went on World Maths Day, and I won first place! I played against Dariana C. in Canada, Jake B. from Caymans Island, and Isabella G. from Colombia.

    Dariana C. is from Earl School, Jake B. is from Cayman Prep High School, and Isabella G. is from The Columbus School ES.

    I have a question...

    Have you ever played against someone at our school or someone who is at a other school that you know?

    Grace :)

  2. Dear Mrs. Ranney,

    I have been waiting all year for World Maths Day. I finally got to play on it. I wish we could have World Math Day every day! The kids I played against were from Australia, Japan, and United States, etc.

    I hope I have the chance to play with one of my classmates.

    Have fun everyone!

    Your student,

  3. Dear Mrs. Ranney,

    I played against a Canadian,an Australian,and an American. I have received 4th Place. Math is one of my favorite school subjects! Does anybody want to play against me at a certain time? Please let me know.


  4. @Grace, Emily, and Aidan,
    I am so impressed with how quickly you logged in and started practicing for World Maths Day! What great enthusiasm!

    Great job!

  6. Dear Mrs. Ranney,

    I just got to the blog from World Maths Day!

    I played against someone from Ecuador and someone from Australia. I came in second place! I don't remember who was in first place.

    Playing World Maths Day was fun yet challenging. The fun part was playing against other people. The challenging part was that the questions went by very fast.

    Your student,

To do that, I will go on World Maths Day almost every day. I hope our whole school will get in the 2011 Word Maths Day Hall Of Fame. Let's all practice, so we can be in the 2011 Word Maths Day Hall Of Fame.

Those people are Jamie, Carly, and Edo! World Maths Day is a lot of fun because you get to play against people all around the world!


  15. Dear Mrs. Ranney,

    I really enjoyed doing World Maths Day! I think that I liked doing multiplication most. I also did addition.

    It was fun to read about who you were playing with. When we were in the computer lab, I happened to play against Gal once.

    Another feature I liked about Wold Maths Day was that they told you the school and what country the the person lived in.

    Those are some of the reasons why I enjoyed Wold Maths Day so much!
